"I am very pleased with our execution so far this year and our continued focus on becoming medical care givers most trusted service," said Jonathan Bush, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Be it confirmation of the Affordable Care Act or the results of our third annual Physician Sentiment Index, all evidence suggests that cloud-based services are on the right side of history. The athenahealth team understands the growing cost of care coordination placed on medical care givers today and remains focused on improving that experience in a sustainable way. During the past quarter, we brought athenaNet mobile with the launch of our iPhone application, expanded our service offerings to include credentialing and eligibility denials, and expanded our client training and support through the athenaCareSM service.

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA increased 18%, to $20.6 million, or 19.9% of total revenue, from Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $17.5 million, or 22.5% of total revenue, in the same period last year. For the three months ended June 30, 2012, GAAP net income was $4.2 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to $5.2 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, in the same period last year. Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income was $9.0 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, up from $7.9 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the same period last year.

"Our quarterly revenue surpassed the $100 million mark for the first time in Company history, and we continued to exceed 30% top-line growth. Given this strong performance year to date, we are pleased to update our guidance for fiscal year 2012, increasing our expectations for both revenue growth and profitability.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
TO COMPARABLE GAAP MEASURES
(Unaudited, in thousands, except per share amounts)

The following is a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company to describe the Company's financial results determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP). An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors regarding the underlying performance of the Company's business operations, investors are reminded to consider these non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, it should be noted that these non-GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies, and management may utilize other measures to illustrate performance in the future. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.

Please note that these figures may not sum exactly due to rounding.

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP. However, management believes that, in order to properly understand the Company's short-term and long-term financial and operational trends, investors may wish to consider the impact of certain non-cash or non-recurring items, when used as a supplement to financial performance measures in accordance with GAAP. These items result from facts and circumstances that vary in frequency and impact on continuing operations. Management also uses results of operations before such items to evaluate the operating performance of the Company and compare it against past periods, make operating decisions, and serve as a basis for strategic planning. These non-GAAP financial measures provide management with additional means to understand and evaluate the operating results and trends in the Company's ongoing business by eliminating certain non-cash expenses and other items that management believes might otherwise make comparisons of the Company's ongoing business with prior periods more difficult, obscure trends in ongoing operations, or reduce management's ability to make useful forecasts. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide additional means of evaluating period-over-period operating performance. In addition, management understands that some investors and financial analysts find this information helpful in analyzing the Company's financial and operational performance and comparing this performance to its peers and competitors.

Management defines "Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Profit" as total revenue, less direct operating expense, plus (1) stock-based compensation expense allocated to direct operating expense and (2) amortization of purchased intangibles, and "Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Margin" as Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Profit as a percentage of total revenue. Management considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be important indicators of the Company's operational strength and performance of its business and a good measure of its historical operating trends. Moreover, management believes that these measures enable investors and financial analysts to closely monitor and understand changes in the Company's ability to generate income from ongoing business operations.

Management defines "Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA" as the sum of GAAP net income before provision for income taxes, total other (income) expense, stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, and amortization of purchased intangibles and "Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Margin" as Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue. Management defines "Non-GAAP Adjusted Operating Income" as the sum of GAAP net income before provision for income taxes, total other (income) expense, stock-based compensation expense, and amortization of purchased intangibles, and "Non-GAAP Adjusted Operating Income Margin" as Non-GAAP Adjusted Operating Income as a percentage of total revenue. Management defines "Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income" as the sum of GAAP net income before (gain) loss on interest rate derivative contract, stock-based compensation expense, amortization of purchased intangibles, and any tax impact related to these items, and "Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income per Diluted Share" as Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income divided by weighted average diluted shares outstanding. Management considers all of these non-GAAP financial measures to be important indicators of the Company's operational strength and performance of its business and a good measure of its historical operating trends, in particular the extent to which ongoing operations impact the Company's overall financial performance.

Management excludes each of the items identified below from the applicable non-GAAP financial measure referenced above for the reasons set forth with respect to that excluded item:

  • Stock-based compensation expense - excluded because these are non-cash expenses that management does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of the Company's business, and also because the total amount of expense is partially outside of the Company's control because it is based on factors such as stock price, volatility, and interest rates, which may be unrelated to the Company's performance during the period in which the expense is incurred.
  • Amortization of purchased intangibles - purchased intangibles are amortized over their estimated useful life and generally cannot be changed or influenced by management after the acquisition. Accordingly, this item is not considered by management in making operating decisions. Thus, including such charge does not accurately reflect the performance of the Company's ongoing operations for the period in which such charge is incurred.
  • Gains and losses on interest rate derivative contract - excluded because, until they are realized, to the extent these gains or losses impact a period presented, management does not believe that they reflect the underlying performance of ongoing business operations for such period.
